So this is the first post of my new blog. It also happens to be the first day of New York Fashion Week and fashion month for the F/W 12.13 season. No, I don't really have some awesome purpose for choosing to launch my blog today. It's actually been several days since I created/formatted this blog, albeit with a highly generic template that I like too well to switch out of, so I simply decided that it was about time I wrote my first post.
I'm a far cry from those lucky front-rowers who zap around the globe in the name of fashion but that doesn't make today any less exciting for me. I admit that I didn't follow the shows of last season too diligently but it seems that the hype has come back to me and I'm entering this season fully armed with a new twitter account and all.
Today, I've been constantly checking tFS threads and twitter for updates during classes. I basically spent the school day leeching off of my school's wi-fi and paying just enough attention in classes to still appear a decent student. I was prepared to hop onto the first bus home after school but those ultra-spontaneous friends of mine decided it would be fun to walk to a nearby supermarket and buy ice cream sandwiches. I realised that I had things to do and that Februaries in Canada can be absolutely freezing, but how does one refuse an ice cream sandwich?
The packaging looked pretty sketchy; it was from a brand none of us had heard of and was apparently milk-free, but it tasted just as an ice cream sandwich should so that's all that mattered. In essence, we lost a few calories by walking but gained them all back through eating. An ice cream run with incredibly spontaneous people? Fashion updates could wait. So no real loss there.
